Cute garden apartment
The owner welcomed me. She showed the property and made sure I was comfortable. She even greeted me with a few snacks. The room has a full size bed with storage for clothes. The bathroom is small but sufficient. She has a stove, microwave and sink. The location is nice. The train station is an 8 minute walk. The bus stop to central london is about a 5 minute walk. The apartment is quiet which allows for great sleep. Would return to this property.
Love this little studio apartment!!
Small but has everthing we need. Clean and organized. When I contact with the owner(Fiona), she did explain to us her studio is small but clean and has everything. I had my mom and son with me so Fiona even put an extra twin size sofa bed for us.There are two big windows by the sleeping area and one small window by kitcken area. One supermarket next to it. Really just accorss street from where we live. But there are many other restaurant and supermarket on the main road which is not far from the studio. Public transportation is closed. We took bus and undergrand everyday to downtown. Their back yard is really pretty. My son really enjoy playing with their kids and dog in the backyard. Their wifi internet is also fast. I love this vacation studio. I will highly recommend it!
jolly old time near Tooting Bec
Up side - Fairly clean, great location, short walk to pubs, stores, buses and trains. Our host was very nice and eager to please.
Down side - Bathroom very small, larger humans will have difficulty. TV did not work properly (host offered to fix, but we were leaving anyway). Otherwise, 5 stars.
All said, I would recommend to friends.
Great place in London
Great location in London. We could be downtown by rail or tube in about 30 minutes. A little longer by bus or bicycle. Lots of good local amenities as well. The place itself was clean and quiet and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Great little setting by the garden behind the main house. Would definitely recommend this!
Perfect home stay - Perfect hosts - recommended to all!
Our three nights at The Garden Studio was all we could have wanted and needed - clean and comfortable bed, towels, kitchen, shower and toilet. It’s was useful to have a separate entrance the studios as we sometimes left early and returned late.
The best part of staying here was meeting Lindsay’s wonderful family...they are ALWAYS will to help you and go that extra mile for you. My son have soo much fun play with Lindsay’s children. We look forward to returning in future...thank you for Everything!
Enjoyed my stay at the garden suite
Fiona and Richard were very good hosts - I arrived quite late in the evening, but it was no problem for Fiona. The suite was very clean, comfortable and as advertised. My son was planning to stay with me, so they set up an extra bed for him. They are right about the bathroom being small, but it was totally fine - thankfully, I am not 6' tall! I have no hesitation recommending the suite to anyone wanting a nice, quiet place to stay in greater London. Access to public transit was easy, with buses running on the nearby high road and the train station is an easy 10 minute walk. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby, as well as a movie theatre. I had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly consider renting the garden suite again.
We are located just behind a busy high street with all the amenities you require cinema, library etc. There is a leisure centre nearby with a swimming pool and ice skating rink. Also great transport links into central London
